Great flare. I wish I could stifle my artistic OCD and do work like this.

Oh wow, I love this style!
I'm new to photoshop and was wondering if you know what brushes or settings you used to make this?
It's fine if you don't know.

Hey there! So I have downloaded a LOT of brushes over the years and I am not sure which ones I've used on this piece. I use a lot of Nagel brushes (google "Nagel Brush Series" to find them, they are free to download) and I used a texture overlay layer for the brushy strokes in the background, using a scan of a painted canvas I made and the "soft light" layer setting. I also have a background in traditional painting, which has really helped me with painting digitally, so I would also urge you to play with real paints in tandem with your Photoshop instruction. I hope that helps some! :)

Oh wow! Thank you so much! This is helpful beyond words! I just got the brush pack and it looks like it has a bunch of interesting brushes.
Thanks again! :D

You capture the charm really well, you know :D
